CH House is located in the north-west area of Córdoba. The project starts with a single-family housing program on an irregular corner plot with exposed on the main street.
The objective was to generate an intimate environment, of privacy for its users, that allows at the same time to open to the neighborhood through an exposed, noble and attractive building, given by the game of a material characteristic of our culture: the brick. The qualities of lightness and resistance of this ceramic material allowed to generate this double provision between the private and the public.
The philosophy of the project was to generate a constant dialogue with the environment at its different scales.This rectangular volume is posed in a north-south orientation, where the internal spaces open to the north, providing the necessary natural lighting and also ensuring that the house will remain thermally comfortable during seasonal changes.
The use of concrete and brick generate a formal balance of simple lines and give a character of timelessness to the work.
Openings with thermal insulation capacity were used: glass panels with aluminum profiles and double glazing.
The games of lights and shadows that occur on the terrace is through the screening inspired by the traditional architecture of Argentina that translates into a modern design language. Also allowing constant cross ventilation.
